I was happy to receive this book as part of a first-reads giveaway.
I found this book to be funny, witty, and charming.
My Sparkling Misfortune is a fantasy novel about a self-declared villain who has many surprising adventures. There are many twists and turns to the plot and it moves along at a good pace.
At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like the style of writing in this book with its first-person narrative. I found that as I kept reading, however, that it drew me into the story more and I started to really care about the main character and what happened to him.
I enjoyed reading this book. It was a quick, delightful read. I also found it to be thought-provoking in some ways, as it causes one to question the nature of being a hero or a villain.
I am a fan of fantasy novels, and I found this one to be original and fun.
This book is aimed at young readers, and they will find much to enjoy here.
